It would seem so, Mr. MACDONALD @TypesAndSpells

* IF I MAY, I'm not unsympathetic with @MichelleRempel and her sharing how #pandemic has had a real impact on her life.

THAT SAID, I her reference to @CBCNews as "vulturous" was a bit much.

#COVID19 #lockdown #cdnpoli
** Ms. REMPEL-GARNER @MichelleRempel won't be seeing this tweet.
Should read: to @CBCNews reporters as "vulturous"
Correction 2 (Goodness gracious! ☺️): "THAT SAID, I feel her reference to @CBCNews reporters as "vulturous" was a bit much.

"[@palkisu via @WIONews] Farmers in #India are protesting. And some politicians outside India have appointed themselves their spokespersons. Did the farmers ask them to? Most likely not. Are they helping the cause of the farmers? Certainly not."

WHAT FOLLOWS is embarrassing. /2
Loss of #UNSC seat bid by🌐PM @JustinTrudeau was a heavy blow, underscored by its intense and costly diplomatic push. It is not possible to enter the thoughts of the Prime Minister and know to what extent (if any) Canada’s latest candidacy for Secretary General of #OECD now /3
motivates his actions. Nothing happens in a vacuum. AND, in this instance, for whatever reasons @JustinTrudeau made the decision to not only speak out publicly, but to also brush off India's subsequent criticism. Doing so publicly reasonably equates with a desire to be seen. /4

"Thank you, 'Ian Prittie'."

RECEIVED (albeit, unsolicitied). Nonetheless,it got me thinking ...

A type of Word Cloud emerged: "Williamsville Corridor Plan"•"lower parking ratio"•"modal shift"•"more carbon friendly"•"most progressive approach to parking management" ...
"Climate Change Emergency"•"policy direction"• "walkability"•"alleviate some pressure on housing market" and many more.

@MayorPaterson neatly sums up: "(1:28)the result will be more housing, increased affordability and a reduced carbon footprint."

Keeping this short,reasons exists for bona fide skepticism(i.e. savings from not constructing expensive underground parking will be translated forward into final unit cost). Not necessarily so. Don't be surprised, market forces will in all likelihood ultimately prevail.

The 'Good Book' states: "let him who is without sin cast the first stone."

Yet MP @MarkGerretsen #YGK pays no heed himself to such and doesn't mention HE ALSO IS NOT FAULTLESS when it comes to respecting the rules in #HoC committee.

Here's ONE example:

#WEscandal #cdnpoli
☞ GERRETSEN interrupts MP @ToddDohertyMP [12:02:08] and then proceeds to interject again with a childish swipe during a formal Point of Order. [12:02:43]

Meeting No. 2 #PROC - Standing Committee on Procedure and House Affairs (6 OCT)
THAT SAID, Mr. GERRETSEN dId not hesitate to angrily rebuke Mr. DOHERTY during the previous meeting for what he perceived as an interruption to his speaking time. [17:46:43]

Meeting No. 1 #PROC - Committee on Procedure and House Affairs (28 SEP)

WITHOUT ANY EXAGGERATION, reaction to a Tweet by @MarkGerretsen has been (very) strong and overwhelming negative.

For someone who infrequently visits Twitter and who usually confines himself largely to #LPC talking points, he generally garners a dozen or so comments ...
this Tweet has already collected «724» comments. Reviewing several hundred, I counted eight (8) neutral or supportive.

Frame 1 presents a sampling in a collage of Quote Tweets and Frame 2, Comments. Many could not be used here due to their 'strong wording'. The reader
can make their own judgement. Suffice it to say, CDNs want Members of Parliament with emotional maturity. A modicum of humility is also seen as desirable.

Ontario MP @MarkGerretsen #YGK continues to solidify his Parliamentary reputation for being a champion of truth telling and integrity.

He is the embodiment of QUOTE:
"There are conditions of blindness so voluntary that they become complicity." (Paul BOURGET)


GERRETSEN devolves into what can only be described as an (unscripted) rant.

28 September 2020
🔗LINK [PROC Meeting No.1]

Reading from a prepared script - and even so struggling supposedly with his own words - GERRETSEN launches into bitter partisan criticism. His conduct visibly wears upon patience of Committee Chair.

Utilizing (Liberal interpretations of) #HoC procedure, @MarkGerretsen #YGK ultimately crassly marched in step with his Liberal #LPC colleagues blocking any 'pre-study' of #WECharity links to Prorogation.

@Emmanuel_Rach @ipoliticsca #cdnpoli…
GERRETSEN read from a statement [11:21:18 - 11:35:53] delineating @liberal_party argument against the Motion by @karen_vecchio.

Following his reading, GERRETSEN interjected upon @ToddDohertyMP with (supposed) Point of Order [11:51:28]. Taking umbrage at remarks of DOHERTY,
GERRETSEN denied his statement had been prepared by PMO.

To that point, GERRETSEN had an obvious prolonged struggle with the syntax and choice of (his own) words [11:35:01].
